.... yes. a cig a day would be bad.

literally any smoking is bad. one cigarette in your whole life is worse than none.

some people choose to do it anyway, and that's their choice. but make no mistake. smoking is bad for your health.

Serious answer now: of course. Besides, in the dissection room in uni we have a "healthy" lung, a smoker's lung and a mineworker's lung put next to each other. I tell you, it's not a pretty sight - you could hardly tell any difference between the smoker's and the mineworker's lung, they were both completely charred black.

So, yes, it's that bad.
#11
drugs are only bad when idiots abuse them! and on the smoking thing? one a day will not do you any harm, but the problem is after a year or so that number could increase to 20 a day, making harder to stop and more likely to cause long term problems such as death.

thanks for that, were you aware of how much the smoker smoked?

and do lungs regenerate? if they are charred will they unchar after quitting? sounds silly but im curious

Of course it will. Give me a scientific explanation as to how a cigarette a day wouldn't do you any harm.

Smoking is one of those things that may cause damage to you, and give you cancer or heart disease... in the same way that eating a fry every morning would.

The government blown smoking way out of proportion.
My granny smoked from when she was 14 and quit two years ago, and she's fine. Not even a cough, not even a grey hair.

It depends on the person.
I've smoked for nearly 5 years, I smoke unfiltered rollies and go through a 25g pouch in about four days.
And contrary to what the government would lead you to think, I am not currently suffering from cancer.


I had a beer last night, which will also make me die slowly.
And I had a chocolate bar yesturday... Oh god, more cancer.

Nah you'll be fine. Smoking isn't bad at all, it's just those damn communist abortion approving mexican job stealing faschist anti-american terrorist foreign flagburning propagandamaking nazi hippy canadian russian liberals who say smoking is bad.

ok it could do you some harm, but walking around a big city, or eating junk food will be just as bad for your health as 1 smoke a day!

theres an ad that used to play in australia with these people who were talking about smoking. in one of them, the scene went like this:

*lady is doing the shopping, talking casually to the camera*
"my father smoked all his life. no problems at all. he lived to be 80"

*cut to woman in hospital with lung cancer, hooked up to all sorts of machines*
"i'm 40..."


that's how it is with smoking. you cant tell what it's going to do to you at any given time, but they will do damage.

Oh yeah, base the entire effects of long-term smoking on one person. That's science, kids!

On second thought, smoke all you want. We should urge every moron to smoke more to weed out the dumber parts of the population.

According to the professor he was an "average smoker", meaning he probably didn't smoke a pack a day... probably 1 a day, maybe 2. But like I said, it was a horrid sight. Also, forgot to mention there was a lung of a "passive" smoker too... almost just as bad as the "active" smoker.
Quote by jimithrash

Smoking damages the lung's natural defense/regeneration systems (thin mucus layer lining the lung's walls, covered with tiny little hairs, as a defense barrier)... so, in normal circumstances the lungs would be able to recover to some extent, but smoking damages that ability as well!

His input is so flawed you're obviously cherrypicking what you want to see and treat that as fact.

1 cig a day won't do much damage.

Car exhausts and the filhty air in cities is probably worse.

But ye smoking 1 cig is bad duh ofcourse.

So is drinking alcohol and so is eating junkfood.

The keyword "amount" is where the difference lies.

Unfortunately cigs or shall I say the nicotine the companys put in tobacco to get more money of ur addiction is where it's ****ed up.

Smoke of a cig is well the same as inhaling any other smoke really of something that is burning.

Nicotine = bad.

Same reason why some people smoke cigars for taste, that's purely taste. In tobacco it's the nicotine that makes it "Taste good".

I'm an ex smoker btw (Sometimes still smoke if it's uber cold or if I'm uber bored)

Why did I even bother trying to explain to you that it CAN BE BAD? That, in fact, IT IS TERRIBLY BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH?! Even HALF a cigarette a day is bad...

Indeed. Stop hearing only what you want to hear, and open up your ears for the rest - who is obviously giving you much better advice.

Thing is, one cigarette a day can easy turn into 2-3 which will slowly (or quickly) become an addiction.
